How good collaboration can turn into good business or good stories. The untold story of the legendary E.T. chase scene.

Editorial | 06/7/13 | add a comment...

As a kid I loved E.T. As a father I love to watch E.T. with my kids… This movie is incredible because it give me a lot of good vibrations when i see it. Every time without exception. Even if I watch it in french! The magic, the beauty, the point of view and the story are just awesome. I think a lot of people can agree on that.

50JPG

Editorial | 05/23/13 | add a comment...

The 50JPG (50 Days for Photography in Geneva) is a festival dedicated to photography. Thirty exhibitions are proposed, including fALSEfAKES an exhibition organized by the CPG (Centre pour la Photography Genève) with the participation of 77 artists.

“The exhibition fALSEfAKES seeks to probe the documentary value of photography. Whether we are producers or viewers of photos, we all seem to share the assumption that anyone recording images using an optical device is, in essence, providing testimony. That assumption is so deeply rooted that even today, photography is widely considered a prime vehicle for delivering irrefutable evidence. Emerging in the nineteenth century, photography quickly gained credence as a tool for furthering scientific endeavour, both in the social sciences – history, art history, anthropology, sociology – and the natural sciences. Moreover, this status was strengthened by the contemporaneous rise of positivism, a philosophy that viewed verified data received from the senses as the source of valid knowledge of the world.” said Joerg Bader, curator of the exhibition

Another exhibition called “Ici tout est vrai” (Everything is real here) will present the work of Daniel Hahn, designer at BaseGVA and photographer. He will show his work with Andri Pol (Basel), Bernhard Moosbauer (Berlin) et Ingo Baltes (Bruxelles)
